What are you listening to?

Jeffrey of Troy

Padawan Learner
In the crowd a voice was heard
Should you get them before they get you?
Should we strike the first blow?
He said,
No No No
you don't understand

The enemy is in your heart
Self respect robbed by self pity
Look across the country
All the people with their dreams dead in their hearts
Stand up on your feet
Your life is short as hell
You could be dead tomorrow

Today may be your last chance ..

Heard this on the radio this afternoon. Haven't heard it for years and forgot how much I like it. Thought I'd share it.

Alannah Myles - Black Velvet


Lyrics
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rodgers on the Victrola up high
Mama's dancin' with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move ev'rything
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for
Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please
Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave
White Lightnin' bound to drive you wild
Mama's baby's in the heart of ev'ry school girl
"Love Me Tender" leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for
Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet and that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please
Ev'ry word of ev'ry song that he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon
What could you do?
Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet in that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please
Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet in that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please
If you please
If you please
If you please

"WET PAPER" (Mario Benedetti's poem)

singers: Tania y Serrat
Lyrics

With rivers
with blood
with rain
or dew
with semen
with wine
with snow
with tears
the poems are usually wet paper (repeated)

With rivers
with bloody
with snow
with crying
the poems are usually wet paper

the poems are usually wet paper

From time to time, I like a bit of ol-school electronica/progressive-house if its done well, and I thought the lyrics with this one, from 1993, do our times justice. It works on many levels

Here's Leftfield with Johnny Rotten :evil:




Open up
Now open up

You lied, you faked
You cheated, you changed the stakes
Magnet toss that pie in the sky
Unrehearsed, let the bubbles burst

All in all, a three-ring circus
Of unity with parody
Tragedy or comedy
Probably publicity

Open up, make room for me
Now open up, make room for me

Lose myself inside your schemes
Go for the money, honey
Not the screen
Be a movie star, blah blah blah
Go the whole hog
Be bigger than God

Burn Hollywood burn, taking down Tinseltown
Burn Hollywood burn, burn down to the ground
Burn Hollywood burn, burn Hollywood burn
Take down Tinseltown, burn down to the ground

Down, into the ground

Burn, burn, burn
Burn...

"Blackstar" - David Bowie 2018

In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah
In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all
Your eyes

On the day of execution, on the day of execution
Only women kneel and smile, ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, at the centre of it all
Your eyes, your eyes

Ah-ah-ah

Ah-ah-ah

In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, at the centre of it all
Your eyes, your eyes
Ah-ah-ah

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried,
"I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar."

How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd,
"I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar, I'm not a gangstar."

I can't answer why (I'm a blackstar)
Just go with me (I'm not a film star)
I'mma take you home (I'm a blackstar)
Take your passport and shoes (I'm not a pop star)
And your sedatives, boo (I'm a blackstar)
You're the flash in the pan (I'm not a marvel star)
I'm the great I am (I'm a blackstar)

I'm a blackstar, way up, on money, I've got game
I see right, so wide, so open-hearted pain
I want eagles in my daydreams, diamonds in my eyes
(I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar)

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre then stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried,
"I'm a blackstar, I'm a star star, I'm a blackstar."

I can't answer why (I'm not a gangstar)
But I can tell you how (I'm not a flam star)
We were born upside-down (I'm a star star)
Born the wrong way 'round (I'm not a white star, I'm a blackstar)
Oo-oo-oo (I'm not a gangstar, I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar)
Oo-oo-oo (I'm not a porn star, I'm not a wandering star)
Oo-oo-oo (I'm a blackstar, I'm a blackstar)

In the villa of Ormen, stands a solitary candle
Ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, your eyes
On the day of execution, only women kneel and smile
Ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, your eyes
(Your eyes, ah-ah-ah)
